Top 50 Kansas City Chiefs

The story of the Kansas City Chiefs begins in Dallas where they were a charter member of the American Football League as the Dallas Texans and in their third year of existence, they won the title, which coincided as being their final year in Dallas.

Relocating to Kansas City and redubbed the Chiefs they would win the AFL title again in 1966 and that was the year of Super Bowl I, where they would represent the league against the Green Bay Packers.  They didn’t win, but they would win the final AFL Title in 1969 and this time they would beat their NFL counterpart, the Minnesota Vikings to win Super Bowl IV, which to date is the only one they ever one. 

After 1971, it would be 15 years before they would return to the playoffs and by the 1990’s they would do well making the playoffs seven times that decade, although they never went deep into the post season.  The 2000’s would see more of the same with multiple trips to the playoffs but to date they have yet to return to the Super Bowl.

While they are only a one time Super Bowl Champion (and for that matter as of this writing a one time Super Bowl participant) this is a team that has one of the more fervent fans in the NFL and has had many Hall of Famers play on their field.  


This list is up to the end of the 2018 regular season.

Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics and post-season accolades.

The Hall of Fame career of Willie Roaf was more synonymous with the New Orleans Saints but it cannot be discounted just how good Roaf remained when he was traded to the Chiefs for his final four seasons in the NFL.
Alex Smith was a former number one pick from the University of Utah and yet it always felt as if he was the red-headed stepchild of the National Football League. 
Dale Carter was a First Round Draft Pick (20th Overall) out of the University of Tennessee and it did not take long for the young Cornerback to prove himself as one of the better players at his position.  Named the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1992, from 1994 to 1997 he was a Pro Bowl Selection and was also…

Kevin Ross was not tall (5’ 9”) and it could be argued that the Kansas City Chiefs took a chance on him even though it was a late round pick.  Ross would make the team and while the Cornerback struggled early in his career he would improve and by the 1989 Season he was named to the Pro Bowl, a…
Henry Marshall played all twelve of his National Football League seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and while you won’t be dazzled with gaudy statistics or top ten finishes and Pro Bowls you will see strong consistency and durability.
If our list of Top 50 Kansas City Chiefs were to be based on the excitement they brought onto the field than Dwayne Bowe would be in the top five, but as such this is a pretty solid ranking for the dynamic Wide Receiver.
An original Dallas Texan, Chris Burford would lead the American Football League in Touchdown catches in 1962, the final season that the Chiefs played in Texas and it was also a championship year.  Burford would actually finish in the top ten in the American Football League in Receptions seven out of his eight seasons and was also in the top…
Dan Saleaumua played eight seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs with two seasons bookended with Detroit at the beginning and Seattle at the end and it was his time in Kansas City that was by far and away the best of his career.
A Super Bowl Champion in his rookie season (although he did not do that much), Ed Podolak would work his way to become a dependable cog of the Kansas City offense.  Podolak was a dual threat Running Back who would rush for 4,451 Yards and catch another 288 passes for 2,456 Yards contributing 40 Touchdowns in total in his career,…
Gary Barbaro played his entire National Football League career with the Kansas City Chiefs and the product of Nicholls State did not waste anytime becoming a very good Defensive Back at the highest level of the game.
Bill Maas was the fifth overall pick of the 1984 NFL Draft and the former Penn State Nittany Lion and he wasted no time impressing everyone en route to winning the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.  Maas followed that up with Pro Bowl Selections in both the 1986 and 1987 season, the first of which would see him win…
Mel Branch was a champion with LSU in 1958 and he would sign with Dallas Texans as an inaugural member of the organization.  Branch would instantly become the team’s starting Right Defensive End and he would be named a First Team All Pro in his rookie season and go on to be an AFL All Star the next three seasons. …
